You can't say that anymore,. The state is now dominated by the GOP, the conservative democrats have switched. As you know GOP finally has the legislature, has every statewide office. Kerry and Obama didn't win a single county. With Boren Jr. quitting Republicans will once again have the entire congressional delegation.
People registered to vote as democrats still outnumber registered Republicans if that's what you mean but that's meaningless as it is in Northwest Florida and other areas of the South.
As far as CCW licenses go here in MA, many classes to get them are booked. I have a friend that is a certified instructor and he's been booked solid for the past 3 years.
Gee, I wonder why?
As far as voter registration goes, here in the People's Republic, “Unenrolled” (of which I'm one) is at least twice the size of enrolled Rats. So the point Impy makes about registration being meaningless is true.
